This is my second entry to the Weekly Photo Challenge; Windows. (See the first entry here.) I like how the trees frame the rock formations of Castle Crags in the first photo. Like a natural frame. I wouldn’t mind having that view from my window! How would you like it? Imagine waking up with brown bears as your closest neighbor. I know the thought might be scary for some people, to me, it’s very appealing. I don’t have that view from my window, but I am blessed to live rather close to this amazing State Park.

I go here at least once a year. I spent a day here this past weekend. It makes me feel so good! The fresh scent of cedar and pines, the wild country, the blue sky, and the rough landscape. Can you feel it?

Follow your bliss and the universe will open doors where there were only walls.

I was thinking about going to a country music festival this past weekend. A few weeks ago I was asked if I could work. I love my work, so of course I said yes. It turned out I didn’t have to work after all. I hadn’t made any arrangement to go to the festival, since I was supposed to work. I had an awesome weekend at this magical place, and didn’t even  send one thought to the concert I missed out on. Imagine my shock when I wake up Monday morning and open my laptop, and read about the mass shooting! I could of been there. There’s no words for how grateful and incredibly thankful I felt at that moment.

When nature turns extraordinary, your heart turns humble. You simply bow before the glory.
